USM Anywhere™

AlienApp for Palo Alto Networks Panorama Actions

As USM Anywhere surfaces events, alarms, and vulnerabilities, you can use Palo Alto Networks Panorama actions to respond to the events in your environment. Rather than manually adding addresses in the Panorama user interface (UI) and entering the relevant information, you can use the AlienApp for Palo Alto Networks Panorama response actions to automatically manage your Palo Alto Networks address groups using information from your USM Anywhere environment. The table below shows the actions.

Launch Actions from USM Anywhere

When you review the information in the Alarm Details, Event Details, or Vulnerability Details, you can easily launch an action to send a request to your connected Panorama instance to add source or destination IP address information to an existing Panorama group. If you want to apply an action to similar events that occur in the future, you can also create orchestration rules directly from an action applied to an alarm, event, or vulnerability.

To launch a Panorama response action for an alarm, event, or vulnerability

  1. Go to Activity > Alarms, Activity > Events, or Environment > Vulnerabilities.
  2. Click the alarm, event, or vulnerability to open the details.
  3. Click Select Action.
  4. In the Select Action dialog box, select Run Panorama Action.

  5. Select the app action and fill out the fields that are populated in the window.

  6. Click Run.

    After USM Anywhere initiates the action for an alarm or event, it displays a confirmation dialog box.

    If you want to create a rule to apply the action to similar items that occur in the future, click Create rule for similar alarms or Create rule for similar events and define the new rule. If not, click OK.
